The Passport 40 is a top quality bluewater cruiser. She was designed by Robert Perry and built in Taiwan.
Grover McLane is hull #91 out of a series of approximately almost 148 hulls. She was considered a performance cruiser in her day. Although it is heavy by current standards, it remains a nimble, easily handled boat.
She is a handsome boat with pretty lines. Her coach roof extends well forward allowing additional interior volume forward. The side decks are easy to maneuver on and her cockpit is safe and comfortable. Her cruising fin keel with a skeg hung rudder assures good tracking and excellent windward ability. She is nimble and easily handled and well suited for cruising both bluewater and short day sails.
The exquisite interior joiner work done with solid teak staving sets this boat and white overhead gives this boat the classic styling lost in most modern yachts. Grover McLane is equal parts rugged voyager and elegant yacht. The Passport 40 reflects a focus on living comfort without any compromise of sailing ability or safety underway
Grover McLane has the Pullman berth layout with the head forward, an outward facing navigation station, quarter cabin aft to starboard with a hide-away sea head, and a large U-shaped galley to port.
The current owner purchased her as a freshwater boat on Lake Michigan. He has owned her since 2007 and sailed her primarily along the US East Coast.
Grover McLane is seriously for sale.
